Episode 96 – The Flying Deutschman Food Truck – Stirling Sowerby

This episode features Stirling Sowerby of The Flying Deutschman Food Truck.  


The Flying Deutschman Food Truck represents German food culture.  Stirling comes from a chef and restaurant background in Germany.  So he knows what he’s speaking about.  8 Years ago Heidi was created.  It’s a “Disneyesque” pirate themed culinary extravaganza.  His initial interest was to put a real restaurant that serves high quality food from a food truck.  “It’s about flare”, Stirling shared.  There’s an emphasis on customer service.  We enjoyed sitting down and interviewing the chef owner of one of our favorite food trucks.

Episode 95 – Iron Clad Distillery – Owen King

This episode features Owen King of Iron Clad Distillery.

Stephen King purchased the building, a dry goods warehouse built in 1913, approximately 15 years ago.  To best utilize the space, the decision was made to try to store bourbon barrels.  This led to acquiring a 26 gallon still.  From there, they began to get more serious and bought 5 more 26 gallon stills.  This expansion gave them the opportunity to fill one 53 gallon barrel a week.  This slow process encouraged Stephen and Owen to seek advice from other distillers in the industry.  Conversations and experiences brought them to their next step which was to upgrade the entire operation to a 500 gallon still.  Now they had the keys to their own system of producing high quality bourbon in larger batches.  Owen shares that the vision has been to use Virginia based grains.  Their base is a 4 grain mash bill.  The King’s have always been big fans and lovers of bourbon.  So, opening a distillery made sense that this was the direction that the family was headed.  You will hear and understand how the bourbon gene is a part of the families history.  Acknowledging history is in the forefront of how they communicate the Iron Clad story.  Today they make history with their many expressions.  They plant their own flag by creating unique and one of a kind bourbons.  Also, paying homage to the well established distilleries out there too.

Episode 94 – Deep Creek Distilling – Royal Ferguson and Dave Emmons

This episode features Royall Ferguson and Dave Emmons of Deep Creek Distilling.

Dave and Royall have known each other for 20 plus years.  The discussion of distilling came up at a Greek festival in Norfolk.  They began step by step to understand the whole process.  “Doing it the old fashioned way”, as Royall puts it.  Grind the local grain, make the mash and then ferment it.  A lot of their early experience came from trial and error.  They refined and honed their spirits to what have become the amazing products that they offer today.  They are the first licensed legal distillery in the Chesapeake since prohibition.

This episode features Amy Manoff and Ellie Brehme of Manoff Market Cidery.

We had such a fantastic tour of the orchard and farm.  Amy gave us so much insight into the earth to market to bottle concept that they have designed.  Their 37 acres feels more like a budding garden estate.  Gary and Amy graduated college in 1983.  The proceeded to explore the opportunity of starting a winery.  They land they had found didn’t provide for growing grapes.  Although, fruits, vegetables and apples in particular fit in perfectly.  Over time, Gary began experimenting with cider.  In 2018 they got their license to produce and sell their cider.  They have been focusing on grafting and planting apple trees specifically for cider.  The result is wonderful flavorful cider that is full of character.  You want to add this destination to your calendar.   Pick up a bottle, relax enjoy all that Manoff Market Cidery has to offer.
